- About the creation. I have read it from Bible too, about Adam and Eve. Do you think that it's true?
- According to Krsna consciousness philosophy, the first living being was Brahma, and in the Christian Bible it says Adam was the first man. So he wants to know if in Krsna consciousness scriptures there is any mention of Adam
- And Buddha (this sankhya philosophy which is known in Europe amongst the European scholars, that is the atheist Kapila. It is not the original Kapila)?
- And I think, sir, even Sankaracarya has not meant that we must be short of that. He was also worshiping, was he not? He was worshiping Para-brahman

- How about Kabhir (Caitanya Mahaprabhu's teaching is the summary of all Vaisnava-Ramanuja, Ramananda, Madhvacarya, and Visnu Svami, Nimbarka. There are four sampradayas. So Caitanya Mahaprabhu follows everyone. There is no difference much)?
- How do we know if somebody else, Yogananda, Maharsi, and all these different people that have translated it, how are we to tell that their version isn't Krsna's word from your version?
- How is it that these men (Mayavadis like Vivekananda) are so attractive to the Indian people?
- How to convince the young persons who are thinking that Meher Baba is an avatara?

- No, no, but what power he has got (Satya Sai Baba) to produce just now...?
- Not even beginning to get people thinking right (these bluffers, they say "meditation," but what is the subject matter of meditation they do not know. Simply bogus propaganda. You see?)?
- Now how do you classify these men, these Christian mystics, Protestant as well as Catholic?
- Oh, a letter to the Pope. Did he answer it (now I have written one letter to Pope)?
- Our devotee, "What about in America there are so many people, they are chanting Hare Krsna?" So he (Ranganath of the Ramakrishna mission) says, "In America also there are many fools." So he is blaspheming like this, how can we cooperate with such people?
